That is a warm day, indeed! We are at the time of the year where it's cold, windy and rainy one day and pure, hot sunshine the next 😜 A little whacky but the plants love it 😆

@sieveheadsarah I just looked back and it’s about the same as last year, maybe a little behind. Are they not meant to flower yet? 😜

sieveheadsarah

I think i think that as mine is always way behind everyone else’s Kerry, it doesn’t flower until July, maybe that’s normal for it, I’ll have to look it up.

@sieveheadsarah I did read up and said anywhere from spring to late summer. Very vague 😆

Kerry my Constance Elliot is testing mine big time this year, it’s less than pathetic at the moment, compared to this time last year 😵‍💫

@sieveheadsarah hopefully she’s just delayed because of the colder weather. This coming week should pep her right up 🤞🏻☀️

Love these, not sure whether mine will flower this year as it had to be moved when the front garden was done and it spent quite a while in a pot 🧡🤔

Oh me too Kerry! Every year, and especially when my red hot pokers start emerging! My parent gave me 5 of them from their garden and I'm so excited that they've now increased to 8!!!😀😆@kez001uk

@belindah think that’s the trick, knowing where things like to be. Just that isn’t always where they tell you on the instructions 😂

Yep definitely.... my parents ones are positioned in a well drained, corner by the fence so fairly sheltered from wind, with sun at least half of the day.
